Hi, Harjit. Are you interested in testing Gladex or for Glade (http://glade.gnome.org/)? They are two different projects. Gladex uses XML files that were created in Glade.

If you would like to help test out Gladex, the best way I can think of is to download the software and use it in a project. As you use it you may find bugs and think about features you would like to see in future versions of Gladex. Bugs can be reported at https://bugs.launchpad.net/gladex/ and blueprints for features can be documented at https://blueprints.launchpad.net/gladex/ .

User feedback is important for several reasons.
1) Gladex currently meets the developers' needs and it's difficult to justify spending time improving on it when there are so many other things in our lives fighting for our attention. Knowing that Gladex is used and it users are interested in some feature or need a bug fixed help motivate us to implement the feature of fix the bug.
2) Knowing what users want help us direct Gladex development in a relevant direction and avoid wasted work. We would rather focus on user needs than spin our wheels implementing features that will go unused.
3) We can't break everything on our own. People using Gladex in various ways and on various systems reveals bugs that would never be revealed using the systems upon which Gladex is developed.

We really appreciate your interest in Gladex and look forward to working with you.

Can you help with this problem?
